Contemporary American
In a casual yet elegant atmosphere, set in a recently remodelled century old historic train station, Claire's passion is great food and outstanding service. Offering contemporary American cuisine - local, seasonally focused - with a Southern flaire. The renovation honors the historic character of the Warrenton Train Depot, resulting in a warm, comfortable environment for casual meetings with friends, or special occasions and intimate family meals. The warm, elegant Garden Room provides seating for intimate meals, while the Tavern Room features a more casual dining experience in luxurious surroundings. A rotating selection of craft beers is available on tap, and the wine service is regularly expanded. Outdoor dining is available in season, and private events can be hosted in one of several areas in the restaurant. Awarded "Best of Warrenton" every year since 2006.

As always Claire's at the Depot was the place to be for a lunch catch-up with a girlfriend.
The best place to go in our small town.

Excellent meal. Would have given 5 stars for service, but it took quite a while for the server to bring our check as he did not check on our table for quite a while after bringing desert. Had to stop him after he passed by mutiple times to ask for it.

Always a pleasure to eat here! The staff is friendly and accommodating. Food is fresh, well prepared and delicious! The location is convenient with parking on site. The interior is welcoming and comfortable; upscale, white tablecloths, but with a relaxed, at-home atmosphere. Claire’s is my #1 recommendation in Warrenton.

I have always loved Claire's at the Depot. The entrees look great and are always delicious. I have never had a bad meal there. They included just the right amount of carbohydrate with the protein, veggies and fruit. The wait staff is always friendly. I like to be able to took out on the garden, when our table is in the back room.

This was our first time and we were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly when we walked into the restaurant and that same friendliness applied to our server as well. The restaurant is beautifully furnished and seating is very comfortable. There is a full-service bar with seating in that area, a garden room with views looking outside and an outdoor patio area for more casually dressed visitors. I would say they attract an older clientele based on my observations. They offer a specials menu as well as the regular menu. Food portions are generous and so are the drinks. The building is a refurbished historic train depot and you can learn the history at the restaurant. There is an unpaved parking lot next to the building. Definitely order dessert! No question that we will return to Claire’s as much as possible.

The atmosphere and ambiance were what we expected. The food was decent, but definitely not worth the nearly $100 with tip. We were a little upset that or waitress recommended a special, but didn't let us know it was about $15 more than other normal meals. Our meal value was closer to about $60 to $70 with tip, not nearly $100. We were pleased that they give something for birthdays. However, my wife has been before, and this experience was not nearly as good as that previous visit.

The crab soup was amazing! But our main dishes of steak and scallops were not amazing. We felt like they were about the same as Outback or Chili's would offer. The drink I ordered also was not well made. Not sure if we will be back...

We found the food to be superb with portions of a reasonable size. We particularly enjoyed the calamari and the seared scallops. Service was friendly and efficient and both the inside decor and the view of the gardens were lovely. Restaurant personnel were especially accommodating to a handicapped member in our group. Overall it was a wonderful and relaxing evening.

Had an early reservation so there were plenty of empty tables but we were given a table in the middle of traffic with a draft from the door. Asked to be moved but that was denied. We kept the table but found that the light from the upper window was blinding. The server suggested moving to the end of the table until the sun moved. Other than that it is a nice place with good food.
